to "squawk on the street." i'm carl quintanilla with jim cramer david faber at new york stock exchange. if you had a great weekend we kick off the trading month of march with futures in the red. escalation in the ukraine over the weekend will take a toll after the s&p did hit all-time highs friday. ten-year has a lot to react to today. manufacturing, ism in an hour and jobs numbers coming up friday. europe's losses are roughly in the 2% range. germany right now, among the hardest hit. markets, unpressure this morning, due to the escalating situation in ukraine. monthly increases in consumer income and spending not making a dent. warren buffett says he's not discouraged about the markets today or in the future. citing slow but steady economic improvement. find out what else he's thinking about. >> apple rolling out carplay technology with mercedes and ferrari? futures pointing to a sharply lower open, thanks to ongoing instability in ukraine and russia. this, despite monthly increases in both consumer income and spending. jim, we knew monday was going to be interesting all weekend long.
to be done next, jim. >> that's it. our coverage conditions with "the situation room." >>> we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. we're following the growing crisis in ukraine where tensions are rapidly escalating and the president of the united states, president obama is about to walk into the white house briefing room to make a major statement. the ukrainian government is accusing russian black sea forces of trying to seize two airports in crimea and cutting off communications between the russian majority region and the rest of ukraine. russian troops also are set to have surrounded the state television facility, some are calling it, and i'm quoting it now, an armed invasion of the country. all of this coming just six days after the ukrainian president, viktor yanukovych, was driven from the capital following deadly demonstrations against this pro-moscow president. let's go to our senior white house correspondent jim askos sta. explain this for us. >> president obama was supposed to be out here 15 minutes ago so he's running late. he was expected to be at
a background check. >> my name is sarah brady. i'm here on behalf of my husband , jim bair brady, who was loaded in the assassination attempt on ronald reagan in 1981. >> my name is dan gross. i'm here for my brother, matthew , who was shot in the head atop the empire state building in february of 1997. and for my dear friend, christopher burmeister, who was killed that day. and for the 90 americans who are killed every day by a bullet. and for everyone of us who just wants to live in a safer nation. today, as i said, we are here to mark the 20 year anniversary of what could fairly be called the greatest, most significant step forward toward that goal of a safer nation. the brady handgun violence prevention act, which took , andt 20 years ago today to introduce this special report that we have issued to celebrate the success of the historic legislation and to define the critical work that lies ahead, 20 years of brady background checks, the case for finishing the job to keep america safer. first, i would like to thank some of our special guests here. course, the victims and families t
correspondent jim acosta. jim, what are we expecting the president to say here? >> i think the president is going to back up secretary john kerry and other officials, including jay carney earlier this afternoon, that any moves by russia to intervene in the crisis to perhaps invade that territory of crimea would be a grave mistake, in the words of white house officials and according to secretary of state john kerry. one thing that we've been pressing officials all day long, jake, is exactly who those forces are in the crimea area. we're seeing forces with insignias that appear to be blackandover or concealed. it's not clear who is on the ground in crimea. hopefully we'll get updated information from the president as to what that is. jake, make no mistake, this is, again, once again, another confrontation between the president and vladimir putin over what is happening. those events on the ground in the ukraine. >> let's bring in chief national correspondent jim sciutto. i was e-mailing with a senior official who points out that the russians have a base and the question is whether what they
can deliver, beginning with our chief national security correspondent jim sciutto. jim? >> clearly the administration is getting ready to act. no decision made yet on whether to impose those sanctions or, indeed, which sanctions to impose but they want to have the options ready. and today we heard the president warn that his goal is to isolate russia and make its actions in ukraine very costly. with russian troops now swarming, sovereigning ukrainian territory, preparing likely sanctions against russia. president obama vowing today to make russia's military intervention a costly proposition. >> what we're indicating to the russians is that if, in fact, they continue on the projectory that they are on, we are going to have a negative impact on russia's economy and its status in the world. >> reporter: the possible sanctions include freezing the overseas assets of russian individuals and companies, banning travel for russian leaders and businessmen and at the more extreme end, blocking some russian banks from the international financial system, an enormously costly situation for russ
morning. welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm carl quintanilla with jim cramer back from whepg thehelping the wheels of justice turn and jury duty. good to have you back. david faber off today. futures relatively steady here despite the miss on adp. the ten-year yield is back up to 2.7 as the flight to safety fades. what else but the markets? stocks looked to open higher this morning after the dow and the s&p toastposted their best gains of the year. and carl icahn said one company has the worst corporate governance he's ever seen and steve ballmer making his first address since leaving microsoft, he did not disappoint coming to you later this hour. but first up we'll start with the markets, stocks coming off a record session, the s&p a record high and the dow and the s&p having their best day since december 18th. and adp showed the economy created fewer private sector jobs in february as the cold weather restrains hiring. you said the data has been okay. the durables and the chicago pmis have been all right. >> we have great data out of europe pmi. how could
indicates the degree to which russia is on the wrong side of history in this. >> jim maceda joins us now from moscow. jim, we've been talking about this, do you see this as a pull back and a lowering of tensions herely vladmy putin or is it just coincidence? >> hi, julia. it's not questions dense. it wasn't coincidence when they games were called five or on six days ago to take place along the russian/ukrainian border and it's not questiocoincidence tha they're ending today. vladimir putin could just as well have changed, for whatever reason, changed tend date. if this does happen, keep in mind, it was ordered that we haven't seen any indication of a pullback. the -- certainly if these war games do come to an end, it's going to mean that that massive show of force, we're talking about 150,000 troops, 900 tanks, 200 warships and airplanes. i mean, this should really bring the temperature down just in the seeing of and the doing of that kind of pullback. so russia has built up a fourth -- on crimea and division 5, 15,000, 16,000. it has complete operational control of crimea and it's still
by the 1997 base agreement, and de-escalate rather than expand their invasion. >> nbc's jim maceda is in moscow. jim, putin said in his speech yesterday that he didn't have troops in the crimea. he also acknowledge the idea, perhaps, of a further dialogue. so what is the situation here? and do you believe in a diplomatic solution given what putin was saying yesterday? >> good morning, julia. what a difference a day makes. based on putin's comments, many would say that they're taking them with a grain of salt. but he did say tuesday that he saw no need for the use of force in ukraine, he had no desire to an ex the crimean peninsula. that has allowed in people's perception for a stepping back from the brink. this cold war style military confrontation seems to be yesterday's news. and even though crimea remains tense today on the ground, there have been more exchanges of fire, there's been an approach by the russians to take over a ukrainian post again. still, even though these forces are locked in a standoff, it now appears as if ukraine is spinning not towards war, but some kind of
cost benefit analysis, ukraine is hugely important to russia. and i want to maintain high jim any over it. and these incidental sanctions can i weather them and in due course the united states and europe will back off them because they don't have staying power. i will get what they want and they won't hurt me that much. that's their calculus. what's our calculus? >> ambassador, thank you, sir. enjoy london. >> thank you. >> and general bob scales insists russian president putin is bluffing that u.s. intervention must be on the table. i will tell you most people have military fatigue and you put it on the table. >> well, first of all understand russian military forces are very weak. they don't have a draft army. not a single stealth fighter. their navy can't get out of ports. it it really is the gang that couldn't shoot straight. we have still a very strong military. we ought to leverage that asymmetry. is that a threat or actually a follow-through? there are two things there. one is a threat to sort of scare them because they have a pathetic military and the other one is to actually co
heels for a little while until the story clarifies. let's bring in our ace team. michael farr, jim iuorio and zachary karabell. gentlemen, let me go to mr. iuorio because i kind of liked what warren buffett had to say. buy farmland, by stock, by hard assets, don't buy money, i don't really think this is going to be world war ii and you don't think you do either. but in general terms, is buffett right? >> i agree, too. when he said it also he did definitely say that in times of war, which you and i both agree we're not there -- but i have been doing that over the last year and a half. diversifying into things like that. i believe that's a smart way to go. >> michael farr, do you believe it's a smart way to go? what i'm suggesting, i hope it's in line with mr. buffett. but i'm saying fundamentally this economy -- you saw it today. we had a good ism in manufacturing, maybe nobody paid attention to it because of the ukraine. we also had a pretty good personal spending and income number. nobody paid attention to that. the economy is growing at 2.5%. labor profits are so low, i don't thi
on the budget with jim nestle and jared bernstein. great to see both of you. and look, jim, john just made this point that whether it was the proposal from congressman camp or president obama's budget, everyone is saying it's dead on arrival, you don't need to worry about it. frankly, it does feel as though we're seeing an emerging template for tax reform. in your view what could come out of this in the year or two ahead? >> you're right. if you're looking for a silver lining on a day when generally speaking you've seen the president propose what is a budget that's really not going anywhere, the silver lining is what's happening on tax reform, and it's really going to happen in the congress. the president has pretty much checked himself out of the reform process. i think the new finance chairman in the senate, senator widen, and dave camp as well as the potential of paul ryan coming to the tax committee, i think that gives us a silver lining and some hope when it comes to comprehensive tax reform. and the second item is what secretary hagel did in defense spending looking forward and sayin
into making those clever ads more street smart after the break. ♪ >> and that is why i don't like jim's. >> we are not a gym. we are planning fitness. >> it makes fun of those who ruin the gymnasium experience. memberships can cost as little as $10 a month. the club is trying to create a judgment free zone and long alarms that go off if a member demonstrate poor etiquette. -- it even offers free pizza and bagels once a month. they have hit the 5 million member mark. it is paying off. joining me now is the ceo and cofounder, chris rundell. talk to us about the ad campaign. it has gotten you a lot of attention. i assume it's a big driver between the growth that you've seen. -- behind the growth that you've experienced. >> someone who is intimidated that normally would not go, you are making it a lighthearted atmosphere. >> wasn't in the nation a problem in the past? > previously, i would have thought of planet fitness like a goldstein jim. -- a goal gym. 85% of the population does not belong to a health club. >> does not belong deco >> yes to my so if you the rest of the industry is fighting ove
attacked our speed skating team adding insult to injury and then adding [bleep] to both of those. jim? >> do you think that that was one of the reasons why the americans didn't do well, the suit. >> yeah, the suit was one of the reasons but not because it was bad, but because they believe it is bad. because the skating, you have to believe in yourself like american always do. american always believe that they're right, always believe that they're the best, yeah. that's not true. yeah, and you look at the rest of the world. they can stay inside, in your own country, you can make your own game, like american football, yeah. do it your own, and think you're the best of the world. but no way, when you play soccer, man, you're just not half, when you come every four years you come to olympic stadium and you want to fight the rest of the world, then you know your place. zero medals, zero mam, stay in your country, do your own sport. don't compete with the rest of the world. and don't ask the question, why you didn't win medals. because you didn't. >> stephen: actually, in fact, we did have
, has ordered his government to consider a request for humanitarian aid. nbc's jim maceda is in russia. the parliament yesterday promised a referendum on the country's future. what more is needed, do you think, to stabilize this situation? >> well, that's really going to be up to vladimir putin. he and russia are calling the shots with the pro russian faction inside ukraine. it's fine for the pro russian faction to want to have a referendum, but if russia isn't ready to accept these people and to accept a splitting apart of ukraine, which it says it hasn't been ready to do and won't accept, then that situation will simply two forward as long as putin wants it to. and in terms of the actual flash points, the tension is -- we haven't seen it this bad since this crisis began in krimiea. it wasn't just one, turns out it was two more airports hit today. there was a siege by these russian speaking military types, although russia denies any involvement at all of its military. and it looked like a repeat of yesterday's incident where similarly armed adults seized government buildings. today it
this that is unrelated. you heard jim talk about the un envoy sent to crimea. that was threatened and not kidnapped. he is now safe and preparing to leave ukraine. several armed men threatened special envoy robert sari. they blocked him at a coffee shop. break this down for us. what happened and what kind of threat was this? how did he escape the coffee shop? >> we heard jim saying someone will get hurt. this un envoy has his diplomatic mission cut short in crimea. it just arrived. he visited a naval base and was leaving when armed men, 10 to 15 in number, not everyone with weapons surrounded him and demanded he leave crimea immediately and go to the airport. he got into the car he came with and refused to get out and the men blocked the car. they then were threatening him. he was described as shaken and not physically hurt. he walk and sought refuge. the late news is that the united nations is saying they are taking a late flight out and will return shortly to kiev to continue his mission. cut short by today's incident, the words of the united nation spokesman office here in new york. secretary genera
approved that use of force. on the phone, we have chief national security correspondent jim sciutto. jim, what is this very quick vote signal to you? >> reporter: i think it's the russians slow rolling an invasion of sovereign ukrainian territory, and in direct defiance of repeated public and stern warnings from u.s. officials ranging from secretary kerry, secretary hagel right up to the top, right up to the president. you saw his comments yesterday. it is a sobering development. the fact is, u.s. officials were already telling us yesterday that those masked troops on the ground as of yesterday in and around crimea were russian so now you have a public in effect acknowledgment from the russian government that the president wants to send troops in there, this authorization. i think the other point is that you can see this as an intelligence failure by the u.s. officials had been telling us in the last 48, 72 hours that it was their assessment that the russians would not go in, and here you have it happening. it is not the way they did it in georgia in 2008. you remember when russia sent t

is going to lose, the russian people are going to lose. >> jim maceda joins us from moscow. a "new york times" article quotes angela merkel having had a telephone conversation with vladimir putin saying she's not sure he is in touch with reality and he is in another world. what does this mean for an escalation of the situation here, do you think? >> what it means is we don't know what will happen next because we can't really anticipate what putin will do. putin is a product of the cold war. for him, no matter how you try to convince him otherwise, anything west of ukraine is enemy territory for him. and he in his own mind is seeing nato creeping up ever so closer -- or closely to his boarders. now, you mentioned secretary kerry going to kiev. that hopefully will calm the waters a little bit, at least keep kiev from doing something unintentionally or that unintentionally as ka lates the situation. but it is now true that the west has mobilized at least diplomatically against vladimir putin's military takeover of crimea. as you say, it's not firmly in his hands. that it's really, julia, u
's political and economic crisis? cnn chief national security correspondent jim sciutto explains. >> reporter: there's a lot of questions about russia's interest in the ukraine as well as the west. first a reminder here. ukraine is in europe not a million miles away, the capital few municipal-bond miles away that americans travel to all the time, paris, london, rome. western border key u.s. aslice, slovakia, hungary and romania, poland. ukraine not a member of nato but there's been talk about bringing them in. let's get a better sense of russia's interest there. you look at crimea. on the tip of that peninsula, the sevastopol military headquarters. access to the black sea, mediterranean, atlantic, essential for russia and first place that many of those 6,000 and even more russian troops went when they crossed the border from russia into crimea. sovereign ukrainian territory. let's look inside the country as well because there's a split. western part of the country here liens towards europe, 5% of the population in these parts speak ethnic russian. eastern part 75% here speak russian, ethnic f
national security reporter jim sciutto is in washington. could this threat of seizing assets, could that deter the u.s. or eu from less viaing sanctions? >> reporter: it shows how quickly this could spiral into a tit for tat or unupmanship. right now they just target individuals, government officials involved in the decision to send troops into sovereign ukrainian territory. if the russians were to follow through on next step much seizing assets, you know, you have another option for the u.s. which has been discussed and brought up by republican senators, bob corker and others of sanctioning russian entities, meaning state banks, oil companies, energy companies, and that's when you start talking about real money. russia's trade, russia's very economy is dependent on access to the international finance system, its trade with europe. again europe lose as lot and that's why you're seeing opposition from the germans and british and others to more significant sanctions that have already been put on the table by the u.s. >> jim, educate our viewers. how common is it for a country that has
's lost in all flaws as well as you said he was effectively forced a rezoning that day is that jim and president when prosecutions to loose this investigation and when the mall is anybody to the media began to recruit christie and most evenings it became pretty clear that no more than one occasion he had at least appeared to below the line between he's a spry differentiates he's presumed conte said his business associates. matt and he weeded people folder there was something possibly a maze he didn't handle the prices are very well is evil study says he's paid a high price for that since it is unlikely he'll return to politics. so now the prosecutors who brought this case the ants will have some explaining to do. yes nothing big dvd doesn't like the taste of the zealous to proceed teaches going even further than the evidence merely letting you might tell us to some people out with this shouldn't be a mechanism that prevents the political fallout from a case like this with the ramifications when there's been no wrongdoing of course most people say everyone is equal under the mall i
. >> nbc chief pentagon correspondent jim mcicklaszewsk is following the crisis. >> u.s. military officials at the pentagon continue to stress there are no viable options, no viable military solutions to this russian/ukrainian crisis. officials continue to stress that they have issued no orders to scramble any military assets, no ships, no planes, no military forces have been put on stand-by. the question is, if you did that, then what would they do? and the big fear is that it could lead to some unintended confrontation with the russian military forces that nobody here wants. instead, they're going to take some small steps. they're talking about suspending or canceling a joint u.s./russian military exercise set for may and cutting off for the time being all military to military consultations and contacts with the russians. you know, the feeling is that the only viable weapons now in the u.s. arsenal are diplomatic and economic sanctions, which the white house has been talking about for some time now. and if there's any piece of good news in any of this, u.s. military says intelligence indi
